A Chance For Children

Because all children deserve a chance


A Beautiful Note from ACFC Mom -

Posted on by A Chance For Children

I’m not good at choosing the right words but I know how I feel and that’s the fact that my children’s lives were totally changed because of ACFC. They were shown a totally different life then the one I could have ever provided for them. Starting with Telisa having the opportunity to travel to a different state in the fifth grade. All of my children’s Christmases have always been far more than I could have provided for them. They have been taught things and experienced so much in there little lives that I really, really feel if it hadn’t been for you, Tai, they would have taken another route in life. I’m graciously humbled to have you in our lives.
We love you, Aliesha Nickerson

    Our Mission

    A Chance for Children strives to empower at-risk youth by providing the opportunities to set goals and the tools to achieve them. We fight to instill the belief that no child is limited by their surroundings or upbringing. By encouraging dreams and consistently exposing them to new experiences outside the dangers and struggles of their daily lives each child will have a chance for a better future.
